Optimizations for the BMW 520d, 525d and 535d are also in development. Acoustically, the AC Schnitzer versions of the BMW 550i, 535i, 535d and 530d are enhanced with the twin sports rear silencer with chromed “Sports Trim” tailpipe trims in left/right combination.

The spring kit lowers the vehicle by 25mm and up on request an eight-piston high performance brake system is available. The five-series stands either on 19 or 20 inch Type IV wheels in BiColor or silver. Another alternative in 19 inch is the Type VIII rim, which is also available for the 5-series BMW.
